Thanks, Cosmic...

at this point i've pretty much resigned myself to the fact that--like an actor known for only one role (Jason Alexander for example will always be George Costanza no matter how hard he tries to break free--I'm inextricably linked to my passion for 10/29/77...but the fault is wholly my own and I wouldn't have it any other way. I truly believe it's their greatest.

I do, however, listen to many more shows from every era (save '93-'95..I just can't stand to dip into those waters)...and appreciate every incarnation of the band for the different strengths they bring to that particular time period.
For some reason I've been exploring more of '82 lately (I still believe 4/19/82 is a top 10 all time show) and am finding a lot of "lost shows" like that 9/9/82 one that I wasn't familiar with before. (can't believe they didn't do "Truckin'" for a New Orleans show, though...missed opportunity there).

Lotta good stuff in '82 despite their penchant for some speeded-up performances (pretty sure Jerry and Bob were powdering their noses a lot), and like any other year, when they're on, they are ON!

I don't know who George Costanzza is, but isn't Jason Alexander the guy who did the KFC ads????
